We spent a gorgeous day riding through the pastures to the waterfall - one of the highlights of our trip. The waterfall is down a very, very long set of stairs, so it's probably better for people who are in good shape. It made me realize I needed to get in better shape!

First off, Alberto is like a friend you haven't seen in far too long. Speaking with him about his herd and his land management was fascinating. Our guide for today was Shirley...who was faced with a couple of inexperienced riders ;-). She guided us along patiently and even taught me how to let my horse run and I was in... More

I am an experienced rider and I did not want to ride with a big group of inexperienced tourists. I was recommended Alberto's horses by our taxi driver and it was a real find. I booked the 3.5 hour tour around the arenal volcano and I had a lot of fun. My horse was really good and safe and my... More

I did this tour with my fiancé he is a less experienced rider and I am a bit more experienced. The views of arenal are beautiful on this tour. We took some great photos and I got to gallop through a large field that they take you through that has some excellent views of the volcano. The guide was very... More

Peaceful and pretty with a lot of animals, scenic vistas and birds. The horses were responsive and easy to handle. Definitely recommend it!

My daughters who are experienced in equestrian did not want "follow along" trail rides; the experience they had at Alberto's was excellent and good value. Two thumbs up!

Best horses tour to La Fortuna Waterfall in Arenal area. Healthy horses, Edson our guide was so kind and carefully, and Alberto is a great person. The waterfall is cold but is amazing! I really recomend you this trip if you visit la Fortuna.

My husband, daughter (7) and I took this tour to the water fall and had a fabulous and unforgettable time. My husband had been on a horse once and it was a first for my daughter and I. I was a bit anxious at first but Eddie (Alberto's son) was patient and took us through the fields slowly and really... More

It was my first time on a horse, so maybe I was a little more scared than normal. We arrived to the barn and Alberto was very pleasant, however our tour guide (his son) was very quiet and not too exciting during our tour. We took our horses through the fields and up fairly steep inclines (in which our horses... More

There were on,y 4 of us on this horse excursion because we were just off season. Best way/time to do it because you get individual attention. We rode to the falls where the walk down hundreds of stairs is challenging, not to mention the climb back up!
